Arthur Murray's experienced instructors and owners, including some who have worked with shows such as Dancing With the Stars, stand ready and waiting to teach students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Bring a partner to your two 45-minute private lessons (a $100 value) or fly solo and dance with your instructor. In either case, you'll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. These lessons are ideal for a betrothed pair prepping for the big wedding dance or a fledgling fitness seeker looking for a fun new way to get in shipshape. Stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful with a few swing steps in your personal repertoire. Whether you're an experienced dancer hoping to brush up on certain techniques or you have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands, private lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful dance-based benefits. This Groupon also allows dancers to stop in for one group class ($30 value) to test out their newly acquired skills against unfamiliar counterfeet.
In front of an 1868-era house—still painted its original avocado green—a spacious front porch extends to welcome guests. Not much has changed since the 19th century; the elegant yet simple space is outfitted with historic details—antiques, period lighting fixtures, ornate rugs—which lend it its timeless grace. In fact, the house still hosts etiquette classes, usually on the topic of table manners or the proper times to cough during a eulogy. The staff hosts a traditional English tea, complete with freshly brewed pots and dainty dishware. Lunch and brunch echo the lighter bites of teatime: plates of sandwiches, salads, and scones sate appetites without distracting from the thoughtful conversation echoing among the tables.
Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre serves up a sumptuous buffet before each performance to infuse audiences with enough energy for aisle-rolling. Specializing in classic farces, Broadway musicals, and the occasional spot of children’s theater, the troupe has carried out rollicking performances of Hello Dolly, Annie Get Your Gun, Legally Blonde, and Winnie the Pooh. Every year at yuletide the performers roll out their Christmas special.
